Kilwins Asheville


Welcome to Kilwin's Asheville!

Asheville—one of the top 21 places to visit in 2011 by Fodor's, one of the top 10 most beautiful cities in America by Good Morning America, Beer City USA, one of the best places to retire, the happiest city—they all point to one thing: Living in or visiting Asheville is the best! And to make it even sweeter, Kilwin's is conveniently located in downtown Asheville, along with unique shops, fantastic restaurants, exciting festivals, and cultural activities galore! Walk into our Kilwin's and delight in the sweet aroma. You'll feel like you're in an old-fashioned confectionary! We offer friendly service, eleven flavors of the world's best Mackinac Island fudge, 32 flavors of Kilwin's Original Recipe Ice Cream, six types of caramel apples, caramel corns and brittles, fresh candies and chocolaty treats—and you can watch as many of our delicious products are made right in the store!

Our cooks love to show off! Watch them hand paddle our creamy fudge; dip fresh granny smith apples in bubbly, rich caramel; spread fresh-made caramel corns and brittles onto a large marble table; and scoop out heavenly praline pecans from a copper kettle. You can also watch our staff make hand-made waffle cones and luscious chocolate-dipped treats. Have a free sample of our fudge and ice cream! It's all part of the fun at Kilwin's Asheville!

Here's a hint to make the most of your visit: The Wall Street Parking Garage is just ½ block from Kilwin's. The first hour is free, and it's $1.00 per hour after that.

Birthday parties:  Looking for a different kind of birthday party for your 7 to 14 year old?  Bring their friends to Kilwin's, where we close the kitchen for an hour and the kids get to decorate their own treats while standing at the marble table.  Choose from among several different treats, and add to that an ice cream cone for the birthday girl/boy and their guests.  Balloons for everyone!  Call us for more details.

Ice Cream Socials:  Kilwin's Asheville can bring ice cream to your next party or event!  Choose two flavors of our Original Recipe Ice Cream and we supply a specially designed server to keep the ice cream cold for 2-4 hours.  We can also supply spoons, cones, cups and napkins to make your life easier!
